Vinz Clortho[src]

All that is known is that Gozer took the form of a large moving Torb during the "Rectification of the Vuldronaii."[1]

Secondary Canon History

Insight Editions

Torbs were semiserpentine goliaths that resembled giant eels with muscular arms. They emitted a continuous current and electrocuted those in its path to death that weren't already crushed or eaten.[2]

IDW Comic Series

While making direct mental contact with Ray Stantz, Gozer appeared to him as a Torb.[3][4] Gozer was annoyed Ray still fought him and refused to bend against his will. Tiamat appeared and Gozer shifted to another form.


Primary Canon

It is likely that a Torb is some kind of otherworldly inanimate object or some kind of blasphemous mammoth beast.

During the rectification of the Vuldronaii, the Traveller came as a large moving Torb! Then during the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants, they chose a new form for him, that of a giant Sloar! Many Shubs and Zulls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of a Sloar that day, I can tell you."
